Sardines on toast

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 6 sardines, cleaned, heads removed
  • 50 gm butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsely
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved and crushed
  •  
  • Almond migas
  • 60 gm (1 cup) coarse breadcrumbs from day-old sourdough
  • 40 gm (¼ cup) natural almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil
01   For almond migas, combine breadcrumbs, almonds and garlic in a small bowl. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil and breadcrumb mixture and stir until golden and toasted (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
02   Meanwhile, preheat a grill on high. Place sardines on a buttered oven tray. Brush butter over sardines, season to taste and grill, turning once, until just cooked through (2-3 minutes each side).
03   Add parsley and tomato to almond migas, toss to combine and season to taste. Place almond migas on a serving plate and top with grilled sardines.
